Just got notice from landlord stating that they forgot to raise my rent at end of my year contract so therefore I was on the hook for 3 months back rent increase. Is this legal?
No. The date the rent increases is based upon the effective date of the notice of Change in terms of tenancy (Civil Code 827)
